At first all of this really consumed me. I was very worried and allowed all of my thoughts to be about these two situations. Then I realized that allowing these things to lay too heavily on me is not a good thing. I can't fix a marriage that is not mine, I can only lend a listening ear and offer words of encouragement to make it right. I can not make her remove herself and her children from an abusive situation and I can not make him walk the right path. All I can really do is pray. I have been praying and will continue to pray for these two families.
All of this has given me a thankful heart.
And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful. Colossians 3:15
I am thankful for a man that values marriage, family and God. Thankful for a man that loves and cherishes me. Thankful for a man that tries to protect his daughter from the evils of the world. Although the life I live is far from perfect I choose to live my life with a thankful heart.
Saturday afternoon we headed out to see a movie.
I highly recommend this movie! It has action, tears, laughter and best of all a great message. I don't want to give the movie away, but it really makes you see that even in your darkest hour God has a plan. One of my top five favorite movies!
The weather is suppose to be warm and sunny this week. I am looking forward to spending time outside. I need to start cleaning out the garden and flower beds. Always more fun to do in the warm sunshine.
I hope you are taking time to enjoy the simple moments!
